Ubisoft was born from the dream and courage of a family of passionate and visionary entrepreneurs. Ubisoft’s worldwide success lies in its creativity, its capacity to innovate, and its “intrapreneurial” culture. With its drawing power, its brand, the extent of its network and its strong internal expertise, Ubisoft, through Ubisoft Entrepreneurs, aims to share its experience for the benefit of techno-creative companies in Quebec. Ubisoft Entrepreneurs acts at every creative and development stage of a company in the techno-creative industry – mentorship and expertise, grants and funding, networking with Ubisoft teams in Quebec and around the world.
